Timely Inspiration

by

Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux’s iconic timepiece, the Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges, was the inspiration for a collection of new limited-edition writing instruments by the watch brand. The barrel features a precious-metal overlay that is engraved with guilloche similar to the finishing found on the watch movement. In addition, the jewel-set clip is a double-arrow shape reminiscent of the bridge on the Girard-Perregaux timepieces, and the cap crown is engraved with the iconic GP logo. The black resin piston-filled fountain pen is equipped with an exclusive high-capacity double reservoir system and features an 18-karat-gold nib. The black resin fountain pens are available with sterling silver (999 pieces) trim or pink gold (99 pieces) trim; the roller-ball pens (999 pieces) have silver trim. There are also 199 sets of silver-trimmed fountain pens and roller-ball pens available. Prices start at $2,900 for the sterling-silver fountain pen.
